Kerry All-Ireland Senior Football Champions 2007
Kerry punished some abysmal Cork defending to retain their national crown with a comprehensive 3-13 to 1-9 All-Ireland final victory at Croke Park.
The Rebels handed the defending champions three goals in a one-sided all-Munster affair and the Kingdom took full advantage to cruise across the winning line with ten points to spare.
With this unexpectedly simple success, Kerry became the first team since the Rebels themselves in 1990 to win back-to-back All-Irelands.
The Gooch struck 1-5 for the winners, while Kieran Donaghy chipped in with a brace of second-half goals.
Colin Cooper’s goal towards the end of the first quarter had Pat O’Shea’s side ahead after a disappointing first half: 1-6 to 0-6. But Kerry effectively won the game with a run of 1-4 at the start of the second half.
